Molly Dixon, an 11-week-old German shepherd and Bernese mountain dog mix, may be the cutest puppy on Elm Street since the Bratches’ Labrador retrievers, Bruno and Winston.

Mom Heather Dixon, stopped Tuesday afternoon by NewCanaanite.com near Chef Luis on Elm Street, said people downtown drop everything they’re doing to say hello when they spot Molly.

“It happens all the time,” she said as her 5-year-old son Josh knelt with the Dixons’ newest family member.

The puppy is “really fun and sweet,” Molly said, and Josh, a Camp Playland preschooler who will enter the kindergarten at West School in the fall, added: “Sometimes she likes to chew.”

The teething beast is a client of the New Canaan Veterinary Hospital, mom said, and eats a puppy science diet kibble.
